You have decided to spend 8 nights in England for your bucket list vacation. Any time you travel through different countries, you must be able to convert prices, distances, and speed limits. Remember that the currency used in England is Pounds. Current conversions have 1 Pound = 1.23 US Dollars (USD) and 1 US Dollar (USD) = 0.81 Pounds. Use those conversions for this current project. Your plan is travel from Orlando to London, England and spend four nights there before finding 4 other excursions in England.

You have saved up $5000 USD to cover all expenses, so you must decide how much the flight, meals, lodging, and transportation throughout your vacation will cost you. You will have choices to make to plan your trip to your liking.

Make sure to convert each option and then state what you would select. Keep a tab of how much you are spending.

1. For each flight below, convert the cost from Pounds to US Dollars (USD) and complete the table below. The flight options from Orlando International Airport to Heathrow Airport in London (roundtrip), with departure times as follows:

Flight Type

2. Which flight would you choose given your budget? Why would you pick that flight?

3. After you bought that flight, how much money (USD) are you left with for your trip?

4. Now that you purchased your flight, you must now get from the airport to downtown London, where you are staying. Look at the options below and convert the prices to US Dollars. You have 3 options to choose from:

5. Which mode of transportation would you pick from the airport to downtown London? Why would you pick that one?

6. After buying the flight and the transportation to downtown London, how much money do you have remaining for your trip?

7. Now you must think about lodging and food. You must decide if you want to splurge on a nice place to stay, spend your money on food, or try to save money on both. Here are the lodging/meal options that you found. Convert each one to US Dollars and remember this is per day. You are planning on spending 4 nights in London, before spending 4 nights in other locations across England. You found a cheap hostel, which is set up to share a room with 4 total bunkbeds and you also found a nice hotel to yourself, both in the same location you want to stay. Decide which option would best suit your needs.

8. Which option would you choose for lodging/food choices? Why did you pick that option? What is the total cost of that for four days?

9. For your 4 nights in London, you have given yourself a budget of $150 per day on miscellaneous expenses (museum cost, souvenirs, etc…). Calculate the total you gave yourself in USD and in Pounds.

10. Calculate the total amount that would be spent on a plane ticket, transportation from the airport, and lodging/food, and miscellaneous for London. What is the total amount in Pounds and US Dollars that you will be spending? How much money is remaining in your budget in USD?

11. Now that you have budgeted your trip to get to London, sleep and eat, we must now find some fun overnight trips to do when we are in England. Let’s figure out how far away from London the top tourist attractions are. Convert each location from kilometers (km) to miles (m). Use the conversion that 1 kilometer = 0.62 miles and 1 mile = 1.6 kilometers

Outside of London, you are considering visiting the Stonehenge ruins in Wiltshire, the Roman Baths in Somerset, the York Minister Church in York, the Windsor Castle in Berkshire, the Glastonbury Music Festival in Glastonbury, and the Hull Fair in Kingston upon Hull. Convert the distance from in London from kilometers to miles. Round to the nearest mile.

12. For each destination given, calculate how many liters of gas you would need to get there (round to 1 decimal). Once you do this, you are curious what that amount is in gallons, so convert your liters to gallons. Then, find the cost of gas in Pounds and USD, and find the total cost needed to rent the car for the day with the cost of gas.

Your rental car, for a cost of 104 Pounds daily will drive 8.5 km per liter of gas. The current mean cost of gas per liter in England is 1.24 Pounds. Also note that 1 liter = 0.26 gallons and that 1 gallon = 3.75 liters.

13. Research all 6 of the above possible destinations and decide which 4 places you would want to visit. List them below and a brief reason why you would select those destinations.

14. Calculate the cost to drive to each one of these places, assuming that you are leaving from London. What is the total cost of driving and renting the car for the 4 days?

15. While driving, you have no idea how fast you are going because the speedometer is in kilometers per hour. Convert the following speeds into miles per hour so you know how fast you are going. Note that 1km/h = 0.62 mi/h and 1 mi/h = 1.6 km/h.

Speed in km/h




Speed in mi/h

16. For each of the 4 destinations, you have allowed yourself $300 USD per day for lodging, food, and miscellaneous expenses / souvenirs. What is the total over 4 days that you allowed yourself in USD and Pounds?

17. Add up the totals for all the money spent in London and your 4 other destinations including car rental. How much money did you spend altogether in USD and in Pounds? Were you able to stay under the $5000 USD that you saved up for your trip?

18. If you could put together a trip like this, where would you want to go and why?
